In-depth Comparison (2023): Coop Eden Pillow vs. Pacific Coast Double DownAround Pillow

I tested 14 different pillows over the course of six months. I slept on each pillow for at least five nights each. I rated each pillow based on how comfortable it was to sleep on over an extended period of time, whether or not the construction seemed high quality to me, and my take on suitability for different body types and sleep positions. Here is an in-depth comparison of the Coop Eden Pillow and Pacific Coast Double DownAround Pillow.

The Coop Home Goods Eden Pillow is an adjustable pillow similar to the Saybrook pillow. I really enjoy the sleep experience on the Coop at the start of the night, but it does have a few flaws that hold it back, including the way the polyester filling is tangled together inside the filling, the overall dominant feel of the polyester filling, and memory foam that doesn't feel like memory foam to me.

The Coop Eden Pillow is adjustable, which allows it to accommodate multiple sleep positions and body types.

The pillow is adjustable with shredded memory foam and polyester fiber inside. It arrives in a box with extra filling, which is a nice touch, though it comes overstuffed already. I doubt anyone would be adding additional filing. Personally, I took out about a quarter of the filling before sleeping on mine. The ability to micro-adjust the pillow loft to the perfect height gives this pillow a massive advantage over other pillows in contention without this feature. The Coop Eden Pillow is the higher priced pillow that Coop offers. They also offer the Coop Original pillow, which does not come with silicone gel, according to the Coop website.

The polyester fiber is different in the Coop pillow compared to the Saybrook pillow. The fibers are long and tangled throughout the pillow. There is also more polyester fiber in comparison. The result is that taking out filling from the Coop pillow requires ripping out chunks of entangled polyester fiber, similar to ripping apart large cotton balls. For the Coop Eden Pillow that I have, after I remove some filling, I have to shake the pillow vigorously in order to spread everything evenly again because the filling left inside the pillow is still tangled together. The experience has unnecessary friction.

The Coop Eden filling has more polyester fiber relative to the Saybrook Lion Down Alternative filling. Overall, it sleeps more like a polyester pillow for me.

I am underwhelmed by the quality of the foam. When I squeeze the foam between my fingers, it just seems like regular foam to me instead of memory foam. Instead of a slow motion compression, the foam collapses in real time, and I can visibly tell that the foam has looser air bubbles. The Coop foam brings to mind the foam used on Walkman over-the-ear headphones in the 80's or the foam of a sponge. As a result, my experience is that the foam provides less support compared to other memory foam pillows that I've tried. I find that my Coop pillow feels flatter by morning, and I don't feel as supported as I would like. Unfortunately, adding more filling in would make the pillow feel too lofty at the start of the night, so that wouldn't be a good solution to the problem. On the plus side, I do enjoy using the Coop pillow for stomach-sleeping.

Notice the larger air bubbles shown here in the Coop foam.

Because the proportion of polyester fibers is higher and because of the feel of the foam, the pillow overall sleeps more like a polyester pillow in my opinion. If you're looking for a polyester pillow, I would recommend the Coop Eden Pillow since it is adjustable. However, if you're looking for the feel of a memory foam pillow, then I'd recommend considering the other options.

The Pacific Coast Double DownAround Pillow is a down and feather pillow that uses a double-chamber design like the Chamberlain Down Dual-Chamber Pillow. However, I see a huge difference in quality.

Though the Pacific Coast Double DownAround pillow has an outer chamber of down, I can feel the quills inside the pillow I have when I lay my head down.

Most notably, even though the Pacific Coast pillow uses a dual-chamber design that keeps feathers in the inner chamber and down in the outer layer, I can still feel the quills from the feathers when I lie down. In contrast, the Chamberlain Down pillow feels like sleeping on air because the down layer feels more robust. I suspect this is because of a difference in the size of down clusters used by each pillow. The Pacific Coast website lists the down fill power, which measures the size of the down clusters, at 550 in the Double DownAround Pillow. The Chamberlain website lists the fill power at 600+, which means that the down clusters are larger in the Chamberlan Down Dual-Chamber Pillow. Larger clusters tend to be better at trapping air and providing loft.

In the Pacific Coast pillow I have, feathers are sticking out of the stitching along the seams, as shown in the picture below. This gives me low confidence in the construction quality of the pillow.

The Pacific Coast pillow I received has feathers sticking out of the seams.

Another consideration is that I can hear a rustling noise inside the Pacific Coast pillow I have when I push down on it. The noise is relatively loud, and I'd compare it to the crinkling of a plastic grocery bag in terms of loudness and nature. The sound appears to originate from the inner chamber. Since a pillow is something I put my ear against when I sleep, the last adjective I'd want to use to describe it is "noisy." I can hear a crinkling in the Puredown pillow and Chamberlain Down pillow fabrics if I rustle them and concentrate on listening, but I wouldn't consider noise to be an issue for those two pillows. The Pacific Coast pillow I have is much louder to my ears and in a completely different league of noise.

The Pacific Coast Double DownAround Pillow comes in a Soft, Medium, and Firm version on their website as of my time of purchase. I ordered the pillow from Amazon, and I didn't see the firmness specified in the listing when I purchased. I ended up receiving the Soft version, which I prefer to use for stomach-sleeping. It's possible that the Medium and Firm versions can work for back-sleeping and side-sleeping, but based on my experience with the perceived construction quality of the Soft pillow, I don't intend to try the other options.

Finally, it's worth noting that the Pacific Coast pillow, like all down and feather pillows, would require regular fluffing to restore the loft. Because down and feather pillows work by trapping air, which escapes after an extended period of sleeping, down and feather pillows benefit from a fluff that pumps air back in.

Picking the right pillow can be important. I did all the research here to make the process easier. I hope that this blog helps you as you make your decision.
